A loan of $350 helped to use as working capital for businesses.

Gloria's story

Gloria is a married woman who lives in Bayawan City, Negros Oriental. She earns her living by operating 2 business ventures: a general store and a hog raising business. Her husband Felix helps her run the businesses. They have 6 children who are between 36 and 41 years old. All of them now have their own family.

Gloria joined NWTF-Project Dungganon in 2007 because she aspired for something better for her family. With the help of her past 5 loans from NWTF-Project Dungganon, Gloria has been incrementally lifting her family out of poverty by the sweat of her brow. Her previous loan of PHP 15000 helped her earn a monthly profit of PHP 20000, uplifting the family's standard of living. This time, for her 6 cycle loan, she is borrowing PHP 15000, which she intends to use as working capital for her businesses so that she can continue to save up for future family needs. Gloria is a Dungganon woman who is following an honorable path toward the achievement of her dreams.
